Managing Partner appointment at Ganado Advocates

Ganado Advocates is pleased to announce the appointment of Andre Zerafa as the Managing Partner of the firm, succeeding Louis Cassar Pullicino’s six years tenure.

Louis officially handed over to Andre during a virtual event held on the 29 March attended by the firm’s lawyers, professionals and staff members. Commenting about his appointment, Andre expressed his sense of responsibility in assuming leadership of the firm and thanked his predecessor for leading the firm towards renewed successes in spite of the difficult times which the country and the world had to face in the last few years. “I look forward to continue adding to the firm’s long history of accomplishments, serving and supporting our highly talented lawyers and professionals as we continue meeting the many legal needs of our clients and communities”, Andre commented.

Highly acclaimed for his experience and expertise in the field of investment services and funds, Andre has been consistently named as a leading lawyer in his area of practice by legal peers and clients alike. For over 20 years, Andre’s forward-looking approach has contributed to the firm’s positioning as first mover and leader in burgeoning sectors and legal practices in Malta and abroad.

During Louis’ term as Managing Partner, Ganado Advocates continued to enhance its reputation as a top-tier law firm, upholding the legal profession’s highest values and standards. Professional development was a major focus over the past six years, ensuring continuity in addressing complex legal issues characterising today’s business and legal markets. As part of a wider strategy of providing its clients with cross border solutions within the European Union, the firm also opened an office in Luxembourg. Following his retirement as Managing Partner, Louis will continue to focus exclusively on litigation and international arbitration in the years ahead.

Andre will be supported by the firm’s Board of Management comprising Adrian Gabarretta, Matthew Bianchi, Daniel Aquilina, Conrad Portanier and Matthew Brincat. Together, they will continue to lead the firm’s focus on excellence, specialisation and professional development.
